October Shooting

Dear All

It has been brought to my attention that there are 2 shoots this month!!

Our regular midweek practice will be shot on Wednesday 21st October at 100 yards on Short Siberia.

You cannot just turn up and shoot!!

In line with current legislation please let me know if you are coming as we have to keep a record, plus we may have to limit numbers to ensure social distancing.

Don’t forget our Mini McQueen competition.

This is on Saturday 10th October

Location: BSRC Time Limit range at Bisley
This is a .22RF practice at 50 yds being a miniature version of the normal McQueen
Targets: 9 electrically operated miniature 'Huns Head' targets behind McQueen castle
Timing: Random target window, 3 second exposure at 10-20sec intervals
2 sighters and 10 to count - one shot per exposure
Rifle: 22RF rifle with minimum x4 telescopic sight - no iron sights. The paddles are very small!
You will need a rifle with a 10 round magazine or fast single loader
Position: rested or on bipod

Two “castles” are set up, so two shooters each detail, which takes approximately 15 minutes.  Don’t forget your FAC and SCC.

Entry for this is now open online through the HBSA website
